YASSI Pressman came to the defense of her close friend Nadine Lustre following negative reactions to the actress' statement about living in one house with boyfriend and leading man James Reid.

Pressman, being close friend of the couple, said Lustre and Reid must prefer to keep their relationship private.

"Siguro may mga bagay na gusto (nilang) manatiling personal na lang," she said.

Pressman said she doesn't know if there's truth to rumors.

"Ako, personally, wala talaga akong alam sa ganung mga detalye. Baka naman may mga pagkakataon na andoon siya (sa bahay ni James). Baka bumisita lang. Hindi ko po alam. At the end of the day, we all have a choice."

She also said that Reid's rumored romance with Lustre's best friend, Mika Tan, is false.

The "FPJ's Ang Probinsyano" star said they belong in one big and tight knit group and she doesn't feel the issue affected the couple or Tan.

"Hindi naman kasi yun totoo. Parang hindi naman yata sila naapektuhan dahil hindi talaga totoo. At alam naman ng lahat na sila talaga," she said. (SunStar Philippines)
